Charlie has personally hand selected a small bunch of wines from his range that he believes will accompany your Easter Sunday roast ham or lamb perfectly and will help to enhance the flavours of your meal. Charlie accentuates that if he has learnt anything from his events with the Manchester Meat Club, it is pairing a great wine with a great cut of meat that go hand in hand to send your taste buds wild!
Smoking Loon Old Vine Zinfandel
Aromas of red raspberry, sweet leather and a hint of silky, spicy Mexican chocolate.
For instance, Charlie has selected a perfect accompaniment for that traditional Easter ham dish. This will be a big hit with those red wine lovers amongst you as my choice is the Smoking Loon Old Vine Zinfandel which has aromas of red raspberry, sweet leather and a hint of silky, spicy Mexican chocolate; all harmonizing with that noticeable smoky and salty flavours running through your ham dish.
Below are a handful of other wines that are just as good to go with your Easter ham; if not better!

2011 Los Gansos Gewurztraminer

2009 Napa Cellars Zinfandel

2011 Coorong Estate Shiraz
A rich and spicy shiraz with wonderful flavours of black fruits, black pepper and sweet spices
Or for those who are swaying towards a succulent leg of lamb this Easter, the pick of the bunch from Charlie's recommendations would be his 2011 Coorong Estate Shiraz, excellently priced at just £6.49, the rich and spicy flavour of black fruits, black pepper and sweet spices that emanates from this red wine makes it very easy-drinking and warm on the palate.... always a winner with an Easter lamb dinner.
